Achieving a Constant, Stable Environment for your Piano
The Ideal Humidity
The ideal humidity for your piano is 45%. Technicians will tell you that although it is very important to find the ideal percent of humidity for your piano room, it is even more important to keep the air mass surrounding your piano at a constant level.
A professional piano technician can suggest ways to assess and control the relative humidity of your piano room. There are solutions. Humidity controls can be built into forced air systems. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers can be used at different times of the year. There are even climate-control systems that can be installed on the piano itself.
